Our plant collection consists of approximately 1,000 species and includes ferns, orchids, cycads, cactus, and succulents, bromeliads and other epiphytes, plants of economic importance, and flowering vines. The conservatory collection is used to demonstrate diversity, facilitate teaching, and provide color and visual interest throughout the year. MORE ABOUT GREENHOUSE COLLECTION Database:
A full, searchable database of the conservatory collection is currently a work in progress.
The state-of-the-art greenhouse facility is located in the Ho Interdisciplinary Science Center. The facility is approximately 3,000 square feet and consists of six separate climate-controlled plant zones and support space. The total space under glass is approximately 1,800 square feet.
Our headhouse includes two biochambers for additional growing space in a highly controlled environment. The six plant zones are currently designated as a tropical house, two temperate zones, and three faculty/student research zones.
Faculty and students have active research ongoing throughout the year.
